I planted some Iceland poppies in the winter and when I looked out of the window this morning, a single flower had bloomed. It's the most beautiful faded pink, with dark purple seeds and dust inside.
Made me think of this beautiful old fabric I bought at the last Fabricabrac- not sure what I'll use it for yet but had an idea that it would be nice as a lining of some sort.

Feeling so sad about the heartbreak in the USA. A friend posted a link to some Nina Simone last night, and I've been listening to her ever since. What a performer.
Sinnerman (recorded by Nina Simone, 1965) is a traditional spiritual that dates back to the turn of the century.
